her side. jjhn: thank you for going there and clearly there are problems with both sounds. but proponent of the wall say, hey, this deters people. this keeps a lot of people out. >> not really because there are only 33 percent of the border that is actually protected by some kind of fencing. as youaw, -- john: suspect at downtown every 2,000 miles in the mexican border. >> just the southern border. john: the other part is harder to get to, mountainous. >> it is mountainous, boris. there were holes all over the part of the fence that we saw. arizona, texas, you're going to see the same thing. it is the -- cha is only as strong as its weakest link. the chain is only effective as pistol. john: this is t age of cool, amazing technology. i would think with drones, the cameras, president bush foundt a virtual fans. >> he did promise a viral
fans, but it was costly, still requires a lot of border patrol manpower. john: they give up on it. >> they did. it was costing billions of dollars. the gao, a general accounting office issued several skating reports about the virtual fans because it was a boondoggle, too expensive and it was enough time to work and still require just as much if not more manpower. john: they could spe more, but mo of the people who sneak in the country now, 40%. >> forty to 50%. fortyo 50 percent of the people like him into this couny and stayed illegally are here on student visas. john: illegal visas and then just she was there already in the country >> they hang out and stay past their visa stamp date. john: all wall does not solve the problem. thank you. currently congress is working on an immigration reform bill. many people are optimistic that there will come up and it , but an agreement and an easier path to citizenship.
i, for one, up they do. many conservatives are nervous. for years they wanted more done about thht stream of people crossing the border. >> we cannot shut that off unless we build a fence and a wall. i want to put all wall in. i designed one. >> a little bit of wire on top to provide. put a letter there. @% can also electrify this wire. the kind of current that would not kill somebody the simply be a discouraging for them to be fooling around. livestock all the time. john: immigration problem should improve, he says. >> you can take it back now. if somehow they got their ecomy working and got their laws working and in mexico we could pull this back and just as easily as reported in. john: former presidential candidate in colorado congressman more security and wants other measures to deter illegal immigration. congressman, thank you for joining espirito would you do?
we showethe holes in the wall..3 that doenot look like the answer to me. >> it isn't. and the reporter is absolutely correct when she says it is only as good as its weakest link. there are some places where there are not at all it is almost a joke. for the most part it is done for the purpose offand coming to thh congress and the american people and saying, we spent hundreds of millions of dollars on the border. it is now secure. the fact is, you can spend hundreds of millions of dollars on the border and is still not will be secure. here is what can be done. all you have to do his mandate and thennforce e-refy. the mandated for eveey single employee. they have to simply take social security. adelle on line and it takes two minutes of the most. d.c. the person wanting a job, let they're social security number and put it and because
bat-to-bat. i don't know what wrong with it. the mber is bad. if you do that, if you mandate and un force to important things , e-verify. most of this problem goes away. you say enfor. john: meaning that somebody would punish the business that hires someone without using e-verify. >> correct. or if they use it, even if they use it and still hire a person who is coming back with the wrong social security number, that could be a violation and after enforce it. john: this sounds very appealing. just one computer database where you can check. but you are a conservative. you don't trust the government. why would you trust them to run e-verify correctly? >> well, right now about 250,000 businesses use itthey use it ony basis. it is a relatively easy thing to
do. we require businesses to do all kinds of tngs in terms of hiring practices. this isrobably the easiest step in the process. a simple ent into a database. right now is like 98 percent accurate or better. john: think about that, 98 percent. 98 percent accurate sounds pretty good. and it a gao audit into dozen 11 found it was even better. 99 percent accuracy. but that means about 450,000 people who are legit get flagged as illegal. that is awful. >> first of all, they don't get the job is the issue. you know what, this is not 100 percent. it is not 100 percent.
@%t it just depends. you want an answer? that is my question. you actually want to do something about it all would you rather have, as you said, lor force that is affected only by markets? demand. people come. the wwge rates and lowered because they're is a lot of demand. so be it. john: what's wrong with that? >> well, what is wrong with it? okay. how about the millions of americans whose wage rates are depressed and/or the people who are displaced. the employer like that and a lot of consumers would like it, but the workers are oing to be negatively affected. john: what about the americans to do have just because their work forloria who were these businesses created by emigrants.
